The fourth-generation Corvette, dubbed the C4, was styled as a car for the rebels and the “cool” people who lived on the edge and didn’t take “no” for an answer. Despite this push by Corvette to make the car as cool as possible with sawblade wheels and a big V8 under the hood, mostly dads and retirees bought C4…
When we think of a car being wrecked so badly that it’s effectively totaled, we tend to imagine pretty gruesome, mangled wrecks. What we don’t usually picture is an incident that left damage so small you could hide it with your thumb, but that’s exactly what happened to one deeply unlucky Corvette.
The battle for third place at today’s WeatherTech Sports Car Championship got intense with just under 13 minutes left in the two-hour, 40-minute race at Virginia International Raceway. The No. 66 Ford GT and the No. 4 Corvette crashed each other battling it out for that sweet final podium spot.
Corvettes are dirty cars. I don’t care how many times they go to LeMans with the Z06, a Corvette will always remind me of Dirk Diggler, the 1970s, shag carpeting, and porn. Even the new ones. Most owners I know embrace their heritage rocking excellent vintage mustaches and jewelry. They learned at an early age that…
When you’re looking for a good project car, it’s easy to get caught up on the little things that are wrong. Sometimes, too much focus on the details can keep you from snapping up a really sweet deal. Take this 2015 Corvette up for sale on Copart right now. Sure, you look at that picture and you can see that it’s…
Stare in awe at pro drifter Daigo Saito somehow avoiding both the person in the middle of the parking lot as well as the Ferrari that’s oh-so-close to these donuts.
I think it’s safe to say there’s no greater rivalry in the history of motorsport than the one between the Fiat Multipla and the Chevrolet Corvette. Finally, that rivalry has been settled, with a battle on the Nurburgring, and, as most of you probably guessed, we have a winner: the Multipla. Specifically, a 1999 Fiat…
Today’s WeatherTech Sports Car Championship race at Mosport was pretty well behaved until the last 22 minutes of the race or so, with the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Cadillac DPi-V.R getting tangled up in a high-speed collision that utterly destroyed the front of the No. 4 Corvette it made contact with.
John Greenwood liked to race Corvettes. When he wasn’t racing them he also liked to make street ‘Vettes that looked like his racers. Today’s Nice Price or rack Pipe Greenwood GT is just such a car, and it comes with a price asking a lot of your green.
Happy Independence Day, you turkeys. We’re back at full speed tomorrow, but if you’re bored on your phones today we have a full slate of patriotic stories for you to enjoy.
“That escalated quickly.” I know it’s a cliché, albeit a fitting one for a hill climb race. But it’s all I could think about after our car—a salvage-title C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 street car transformed into a race car in just a few desperate weeks—not only survived the Pikes Peak Hill Climb but finished just one…
Cars are made to be driven. Now, if you are some ultra-rich collector and you’re going to drop a several million on a Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic to keep as a museum piece, that’s understandable. But for some reason, people are buying common Corvettes just to occupy a parking spot.
This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans wasn’t just incredible for being unusually carnage-heavy on its flagship prototype class. The LM GTE Pro class full of production-based race cars was anybody’s game until the very end, with the most insane final laps I’ve seen all year.
Most of soon-to-be-retired NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s most recognizable donuts are in his stock car. But the man is a donut king, able to take his tire-shredding skills to new places, in different cars. Here Junior is outside his natural habitat, on the streets of New York City in a Corvette.
It’s 2017 and you, yes you, can buy a professionally-built current-generation Chevy Corvette hatchback. Or “shooting brake” or little bitty station wagon, if you like, for the price of one C7 Corvette plus $15,000. We’ve got our hands on one until lunchtime, so what do you want to know?
Yesterday was a very sad day, because in a Walmart parking lot in Englewood, Florida, a Ford Fusion drove right onto a 1959 Chevrolet Corvette’s hood, causing significant body damage to the classic C1. If you need to grab a box of tissues before reading on, I don’t blame you. Sniff.
A truckload of brand new Corvettes still in their packaging wrap was involved in a minor rub with a dump truck in Alabama today, tearing into at least three of the cars, one of which appears to be a new Z06. Are those blood stains? Do cars bleed?
How do fistfuls of duck calls hold up to an 841-horsepower Corvette’s exhaust? What about the oversized pipes of a modified Ram 1500 truck, or a supercharger’s blow-off valve? Behold, all that is quack.
Back in 2013, tuning company Callaway Cars promised us that it would soon begin making shooting-brake conversions on C7 Chevrolet Corvettes. Soon didn’t exactly come soon enough, but here we are, nearly four years later, staring at the face of Callaway’s Corvette wagon. Just look at this beauty!
